What’s your favorite part about St Patrick’s Day…. Leprechauns? Rainbows? The pot o’ gold at the end? My kids love the whole concept of the little leprechaun playing tricks and trying to catch him with a trap. We recently were sent a free copy of Mr. Mischief and the Leprechaun for review and it of course was a big hit with both my kids (5 & 8). They especially loved the ending (I won’t spoil it!). We are also sharing more St Patrick’s Day Books for kids at the end of the post.

Do you remember the Mr. Men and Little Miss series? I used to love reading those books! This book is a part of that series based around the character, Mr. Mischief and a leprechaun. As you can imagine, the two together stir up trouble….. but who gets the last laugh at the end? Big Brother laughed quite a bit reading it to his sister. She is not one to always listen to a story that he reads, but this book held her attention and had her asking questions.
